We all know the stock mirrors are vibrating- but has any of you swapped them out for something better?

I have a set of Rizoma signal mirrors waiting for some hardware adaptors (not sure if/when they are available), by I started to wonder if bar end mirrors could work on a bike like this? Might go against its racing DNA.

Would like to see how that looks if you go with the rizoma's. Bar end mirrors might be a bit hard to use based on the location they would end up in. plus, what would you do about signals? I am looking for solutions for the deadly vibrating mirrors as well.

Please keep us posted when you put your new mirrors. I hate the stock mirrors, look cool but vibrate TOO much!!

Oberon makes a bar-end turn signal that is compatible with the CRG bar end mirrors. I would probably pick the Arrow mirrors, but Motowheels carries sets of the others as well.

And the holes where the original were when removed?

Somebody knows how to remove mirrors ?

Personaly, i want to keep stock mirrors and find an issue to eliminate vibrations .

The arm of the rear-view mirror comes in support on the rubber base, this base must be put by force on the fairing (a little as a pass of thread). Then a screw comes to maintain the arm of the rear-view mirror, by the inside of the fairing. By exaggerating, by firing hard the arm of the rear-view mirror, we must be able to separate the rubber base of the fairing.

I think that the vibrations are due to what rear-view mirrors are not fixed to a solid point as for example a metallic or other armature, but only to rubber bases. To replace them by metal bases would solve probably vibratuions but would engender an other one in case of shock between rear-view mirror and other body as a car etc....

This thing has been discussed a lot. Metal bases would only make it worse, since theyll transmit more vibrations instead of absorbing them. The reason is mostly due to the engine mounted frame. Everything else mounts to the frame.

Is there any suitable fixing point that anyone can see for putting some small weights? Add weight to dampen out the vibrations or at least reduce them....

Everything has a natural frequency, which may be broad or it may be narrow. But these days its easy to measure the frequency and to identify what else on the bike has the same frequency which is generating the vibration. It's not too difficult to tune the item to change its frequency and so reducing the shake. Mirror shake is not too common these days. Ducati could fix this if they tried hard enough.

TBH, I think it's unlikely it'll be fixed...ever.

A quick fix, would be mounting mirror from the bars, and plugging the holes. That would a little heretical relative to the SS style, but so be it, if it bothers folks enough.

Quite honestly I wouldn't do it. Mine are not that bad...except in 6th (and when I'm looking for that "special" kind of car or bike that might be following). So, I'll live with it, and forget about it.

A tip is to quickly pull the clutch in and shut the throttle, all is clear. Particularly if you're curious about that vehicle behind.

If I need a clear view I reach out and push down on the top of the mirror with my left hand and get a perfect reflected view.

Am i understanding this right? You just pull them out with force? And once they are out of the fairing, there are some bolts to separate mirror from the base? But it's all outside fairing at that point?

Need to get them out and put blockout plates in for track day.

Thanks.
